Ill take a set. How did you set the rotation of each headlight to be level?

There are adjustments you can make in the bracket itself, and the light is keyed. However, I'm only putting the templates up for anyone to go to their local fab shop. Sorry.

I will be grateful with any drawings you share.

I'm also curious how plugging them in will work. I believe both the JK and JL halogen use a H13 bulb so any JK harness or lights should plug right into the JL?

I'll punch out one hundred, sell ten, and they'll be on Amazon for ten bucks a piece. I think I'll just put the plans out there. Sorry folks, I'm not in the fabrication business, so I don't know the right asses to tickle.
You do it as a group buy. Take orders, collect money, then you have them made and ship out. This is your work, you should sell them and make a profit.
With the massive delay on LED you could make a nice profit if these are high quality and truly plug and play.

So, the bucket incorporates a non standard plug that then, internally, changes back to the standard plug. Now, we could cut the plugs off, but I'm not a big fan of cutting factory harnesses. I'll be looking for the bucket side, that's going to be the hardest part.

I will figure out the anti-flicker next. I WON'T be plug and play. You WILL have to solder or use crimp connectors (not my first choice). I will answer any questions that I can, I certainly hope this helps.

Whoever breaks the code on this LED issue is going to make some money given the delays with the OEM LEDs. I just saw a post that said they may not be available until 2019!
No solid assemblies available yet that I’ve seen. Great job on thinking outside the box!

I ordered two 7" headlight adapters for a Harley Davidson, installed one light into a bracket, and have measured a template out. I'm going to make these out of steel or diamond plate aluminum, but I want it to be easy and repeatable. I'll post pictures of my progress and the final install.

I think there are/will be many of us that traded up, but want our old aftermarket lights. That and there are also a lot of 7" LED fixtures that are far cheaper than what is available now.

I have deleted the files that had the brackets on them. Why, oh why did you do that? Because the CNC Waterjet guy said that we're making these. So.

1 week from today I'll have 3 sets. I'm going to test them out, make tweaks, and then, we're selling brackets.
Do you want them spray painted black, fully assembled with the mounting rings and installation hardware, and ready to install?
Do you want just bare metal waiting for paint and your hardware?
Do you want the anti-flicker wiring harness?
Do you want a complete plug and play system?
And how much do you think you should pay for the level of completion?

We have a week before these will be on my desk, so let me hear what you want and we'll go from there.

Thanks.
Abe
